My problem with an ED

By Rene PetersPublished 3 months ago 1 min read
Nightcafe creation

Bloated from consuming so much water

If I start, I might not be able to stop

Not starting to eat because I know what I really want

Gorging myself with whatever I can find

I am longing to feel some sense of control

No control, despite that being my goal

Gluttony, not what I crave but the endless cycle makes it the case
